Best Display Port 1.2 Cable

15 April 2018 - 03:02 AM

Not been on here for a while but always lurking. Running a Dell 32 in 4K monitor (UP3214Q) fed by a 980ti SC.


The monitor often goes black for about 2 secs and the DP symbol appears at the top right corner of the screen.

A Google search found similar problems on this and other Dell 4K monitors. The answer seems to be to dump the Dell

DP cable and replace with a better one. So, looking for recommendations on the best DP 1.2 cable to use ?


Any point in going for a DP 1.4 cable ?


Thanks. Buster.

LG 31MU97 32" 4K monitor

28 April 2016 - 10:23 AM

Greetings. I am tempted to pull the trigger on the LG 31MU97, 32 inch 4K monitor, it will be pushed by a single 980ti SC.  This is a tue 4K monitor at 4096 x 2160 as opposed to UHD which is 3840 x 2160. The main use will be for FSX and Dirt Rally. Does any member here have one that can give me some feed back on it ?



4K / 40 Inch Monitor advice

08 December 2015 - 05:39 AM

Greetings chaps. Once again I need some advice from the experts lurking on here on 40 inch 4K monitors.  The ole buzzard has decided that the lounge needs re-arranging due to new furniture incoming that she bought. This means that I will no longer be able to run my gaming PC through my home theater as I do now, I am being evicted to the spare room which, unbeknown to her, will become my new cave. Its no big deal really but having been used to projectors and huge screens I will now have to get a decent size monitor, I recently pulled the trigger on a new GTX980ti SC so that's in there. I'm am going 4K and looking at the Phillips 4065UC 40" for $768 on Amazon. I had to have a heart to heart with the Mrs, I sat her down and held her soft hand and gently explained that it was just like when she buys a fancy new dress you have to get the shoes and bag to match, she completely understood where I was coming from and I got the green light ............ result ! ..... yeeees !! ..... get in !!!


So, chaps, I have been out of the monitor scene for so long I don't know whats what anymore, I have been reading up on Free-Synch, G-Synch and IPS stuff etc but I would be grateful for some advice on the best monitor of this size to go for, I can spend around $1k maybe a bit more. My gaming is mainly FSX, Dirt Rally and F1 stuff.


Cheers. Buster.

Damaged Samsung 32" monitor

17 September 2015 - 09:16 AM

I recently bought a Samsung S32D850T from Amazon, I had it shipped to the Virgin Islands via Miami and unfortunately it got damaged on the way. Because it shipped outside the US Amazon washed their hands of it but fortunately it was insured by the shipper to the VI and I got reimbursed.  The LCD got cracked right in the middle so now, essentially useless.  I don't want to toss it, can it be repaired ?  is it of any use to anyone ? Ebay maybe ?

Not booting up

23 July 2015 - 11:59 AM

Greetings.  A fairly new build and been working great, now suddenly it wont boot up properly, I get the MS logo briefly then a blank screen, it does not get as far as the happy beep when the BIOS hands off to the OS.


Any thoughts on this chaps ?


Thanks, Buster.
